Horsefeathers reports on a fascinating breakthrough:
ARAB SCIENTISTS MAKE COMPUTER BREAKTHROUGH!
That got your attention didn’t it? Actually the breakthrough came, not from Arab computer scientists, if any exist, but from Israeli scientists working at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot. Surrounded on all sides by barbarians whose contribution to civilization consists of efforts to destroy it, these seekers of knowledge continue to add to the glories of our time.

Matthew Stinson reports on an interesting exchange he had with a foreign student.
An annotaed bibilography of sorts for the blogosphere.
I know, I have been ignored again. Mere words can not describe this blog, though.
Matt Yglesias links to this piece in TNR debunking the false hysteria promoted by the rhetoric of the pro-choice crowd. I understand that they must use this sort of nonsense to whip up their base, but it is really unappealing to the vast majority of voters. You think they would have learned this by now. I am pro-choice (within reason), but I have little sympathy or patience with the rabid abortion-at-all-costs that gets all the press. They make my head hurt as much as the Falwell’s and the Robertson’s. Every time Al Gore got up on the podium during the last election and said in his drawn out faux-good-old-boy accent “The right for women to choose is in deep peril,” I just wanted to smack him in the face. I am assuming I am not alone.
Matt closes with this remark:
At any rate, you won’t see me supporting pro-life Supreme Court nominees.
That is fine- everyone has their issues and their reasons. But can we stop the lying and the hysteria (and Matt agrees with the article, so I am not insinuating or implying he is lying, so don’t go flaming him)?
*** Update ***
Yglesias has updated his comments and I don’t know if initially interpreted him in the manner I should have. To hell with it. Go read the TNR article.
I shoveled for an hour, making a path through the 2 feet of snow to my car, at which point I started to dig my car out. After I got one shovelful out of the way, the snowplow came and plowed me in deeper than I was before. I threw my shovel at them and I went inside.
Fortunately, this pictured really cheered me up.
